Comments: Food, Glorious Food!

Ahhh, Lucky Luke. Good choice, and there is much to learn about those no-good Dalton brothers. I imagine Rin-tin-can was a big hit as well.

I expect Fortnam's is the model for the legendary Duff & Trotter's that turns up many times in P.G. Wodehouse's works.

You have struck a chord with me. Excuse a stranger for the nostalgia. In my family we grew up reading and watching "All Creatures Great and Small." The hampers that Mrs. Pumphrey sent from F&M always seemed so elegant that we always dreamed of being sent one by a non-existent wealthy relative. Nearly eight years ago (when you couldn't order such things over the internet), while studying abroad, I stopped in and had a hamper sent to my parents for their anniversary from my siblings and I. It seemed to us the crowning moment of our adolescence and it was not much less of a novelty to our delighted parents. Thanks for the great memory.

Ostrich jerky. Clunk.

Although you will notice that I did not try it, I will say compared to toasted ants, ostrich jerky sounds positively edible.

yay! Food! LOVE Ginger beer- it's got a kick. Mark swears he wants to try those lollipops when we go to the states this summer. Whatever.

I've heard ostrich tastes like beef, don't know- it looks like it. Why is it gross? It's just like...I don't know- uber-chicken or something, lol.

Loving these updates!!
